So I kept hearing this song on the radio and for whatever reason thought it was Kelly Clarkson singing it. All I knew was a couple of lines from it and that it sounded like her. So imagine my level of annoyance when I get home to check Youtube to hear it and not finding it. I’ve heard a lot of Clarkson’s music, but not all. So it was easy enough to filter out what I was looking for. So when I didn’t find it I was perplexed.
This perplexing predicament lasted a while until I finally found out the title of the song. Turns out it was Natasha Bedingfield’s song “Unwritten”. And no, she and Kelly Clarkson sound absolutely nothing alike. I have no idea what I was thinking. Well, yes I do. It seems like the kind of song that Ms. Clarkson would sing. But whatever. I was wrong, but now I have my song.
It’s another one of those uplifting tunes that speaks to me. Like some other songs I’ve written about talking about living life to the fullest. I especially love the line where she says ‘Drench yourself in words unspoken’. I find this profound. What does that mean? I honestly would like to know. Seriously. I don’t have my own interpretation of the line. And it fascinates me.
And it comes to me at a great time. With the week I’ve had, my confidence has gotten a little shaken. I hate when that happens. Everything always goes downhill from there. I intend to not let that happen this time. My future is at stake. I gotta learn to take the bad, the horrible, the awful as well as the good the great and the terrific. All those are necessary to make me into the person I am meant to be.
Whether these situations I’ve been through will make me a better person or not remains to be seen. Everything that I’m doing right now is helping determine my tomorrow in some form or another. I guess that is the beauty of not being able to see the future. The not knowing. The possibility that I will indeed be greater and do greater things. So let’s see how tomorrow plays out.
